Construction Site Falls

With all of the heavy equipment and machinery being used, it would be understandable for you to assume that equipment accidents result in the most injuries and deaths on construction sites in Southern California. But the truth is that falls from heights harm more workers than any other type of accident.

Many of these accidents could be prevented entirely if construction supervisors, contractors and subcontractors took proper safety precautions. If you or a loved one has been harmed in a construction site fall, it is important to understand your right to pursue compensation in a personal injury claim for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages.
